New Legislation May Help Millions of Americans Who Suffer Due to PFC Contamination

A bill has been working its way through Congress that, if passed, would abolish the use of fluorinated chemicals used at airbases around the country. According to the new bill, entitled the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, per-fluorinated chemicals (or PFCs) would no longer be used in the manufacturing of firefighting foam. PFCs include thousands of different compounds, many of which have not been thoroughly studied. But a few fluorinated substances, including PFOA and PFOS, have been linked to reproductive issues, immune system suppression and multiple types of cancer. The bill passed in the House with a vote of 393 to 13 and now sits in committee at the Senate.
